'A Delightful Entertainment.
The first .of a series of parlor con
certs was given at the parsonage of
the Church of the Redeemer on
Thursday night last. Although there
have been many informal musicales in
Newberry in the past, this was the
first hikg grade concert in a private
house.. Many of those who were for
tunate enough to attend said that they
had not.-looked for anything more
-than an ordinary entertainment and
were surprised when the program ren
dered was equal to any ever given in
the community The musical was all
of*high grade character. classical and
yet popular. The program was full
z*t variety, a male quartette. a ladies'
quartette. piano solos and duets by
both ladies and gentlemen. vocal so
los with piano and violin accompani
ment. cornet solo, violin solo, and in
strunmental quarte tte with piano. vio
sin. mandolin and guitar. Every num
ber was well rendered and enthusias
tically received. A community in
'which such an entertainment is possi
.ble is to be congratulated. and the
.'utheran church should be more than
- gratified in having so much musical
talent among its young people. Other
concerts of the series will he looked
forward to, with pleasure. The next
will probably be an afternnoon concert
.?or the children.
